A sample of middle school students was investigated to determine whether an intervention group called Children Having Incarcerated Parents (C.H.I.P.S.; King-White & Lipford-Sanders, 2007) was an effective intervention for delinquent behavior, academic achievement, self-esteem, attendance, and aggressive behavior in children of incarcerated parents. Students at a small, public middle school in an urban school district were recruited to participate in this study. Delinquent and aggressive behaviors were measured using the "Child Behavior Checklist" (CBCL; Achenbach, 2001). Academic achievement and attendance were measured using a computer-based program called Progress Book. Self-Esteem was measured using the "Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale" (Rosenberg, 1965). Data were collected over the course of four weeks. Participants from the treatment group who completed the C.H.I.P.S. intervention and completed all corresponding measures were included in the study. Participants from the control group who completed all corresponding measures were included in the study. Eleven individuals agreed to participate in this research. Of the 11 individuals who started the study, a total of 11 completed the study as determined by having participated in the C.H.I.P.S. group and having completed the instruments. The conclusions from this research are that participants in the treatment group did not reflect statistically significant change in delinquent behavior, academic achievement, self-esteem, attendance, or aggressive behavior after treatment in the C.H.I.P.S. program compared to the control group.
